Hello and welcome to the website of the Karolína SDC dance club. We dance, promote and teach square and round dance.
There are no professional dancers in our club. Rather, people of different ages come here after school or work to dance in good company. We dance for the fun and joy of dancing. And we speak English :)
Our club evenings take place every Wednesday between 18:00-22:00 in the Sun Dance Academy dance school on Údernícka 7, Petržalka, Bratislava (map). (public transport) Public transport: both of the two closest bus stops are called Stn. Petržalka and they are served by buses 80, 99 and 59, 91, 93, 94, 191, N93.
We dance in two halls in parallel: square dance levels MS, Plus, A1 (A2) and round dance phases II-VI. If you are considering visiting us, please email us first (this does not apply to those attending our beginner or open classes).
We dance cha-cha, two-step, waltz, foxtrot, rumba, samba, jive, tango, quickstep and other dances to recorded music. Names of dance figures previously taught are spoken over the playing music by a cuer, bypassing the need for dancers to learn entire dance choreographies. The dance figures are categorised to phases (I-VI) according to their difficulty.
In this dance, a caller calls out the names of figures for the dancers to dance. The dancers need to recognise the individual figures, but they never know the combinations in which the figures will arrive as this is up to the the caller’s imagination.
We start 2022 off with a beginner round dance course which will be held every Wednesday from April to June between 19:30 and 21:00. We start with an open class on 30 March 2022. The open class is free and we welcome English-speaking foreigners :) But we ask you to bring shoes with non-marking soles.
The course fee is 70€ per person (120€ per dancing couple).
Below you will find videos from previous open classes.
May Special Dance is a dance event organised by Karolína SDC since 1992. It is one of the largest dance events in our region, every year we attract 200 to 300 dancers from all over the world. Most dancers come from Czech Republic and Germany, with a considerable number of visitors from Austria and Russia, and even some from France, Netherlands, Serbia or Taiwan. We boast the very best caller stars; in recent years we had Sandie Bryant, Jerry Story or Brian Hotchkies call for us. You can find more information about the current Special at special.karolina.sk.
